I think that dreams are also an important human quality to study. They form the bridge between our conscious and unconscious minds, whose separation is very blurred (if one even exists at all). I was inspired to write the post after watching this short film on youtube.
In this video the world of this person flashes by in various images and actions. Although none these things happen, her brain somewhat runs a test trial on them and sees just how things would pan out if they did happen.
The reality we create in the dream world is very interesting. On one hand it is always seems more random and less structured than “real” life. And on the other hand, everything in a dream has some time of corollary in the conscious life. In a sense dreams are the most personal thing somebody can have, because they are a direct result ones experiences, thoughts, views, perceptions, day-to-day realities, and most importantly cannot be replicated by any one else.
When you’re asleep do you create a reality or do you just rebuild your own reality?
